Elena Lockyer interview stars at Lodestar

Posted on

Art Foundation student Elena Lockyer met stars at this year’s Lodestar Festival when she was asked to carry out interviews for Cambridge TV (which is a channel on Virgin).

“They wanted someone confident, fun and bubbly – and I seemed to fit the bill! I interviewed bands and soloists on the main stage including Kitten, Razorlight, Sunshine Underground and Rebecca Clement. I had to carry out lots of background research before I spoke to them, chatting about their current work and future releases.

“I work as a steward at The Junction so have great contacts through that. Someone I know works in film production and teamed up with Cambridge TV.

“I’m really enjoying the Art Foundation course – it’s very different from A level work as the emphasis is on what lies behind your work – the experimental and exploratory stages. My focus is on photography and graphics. I am hoping to go to Norwich University of the Arts next year to study Graphic Communications.”
